It’s a POOL Party!

05/23/18

Hello there,

Interested in going to a Pool Party?  Or throwing your own?  Or receiving a gift from a Pool Party?   Let me show you what I created for this summers bash to get you started!!

Pool-Tags

I used the Poolside collection to create these fun, colorful tags.  I have not yet decided if I will be using them as invites for the neighbors, tags for party gifts or on a tags on a scrapbooking layout.  The possibilities are endless.

Marco-Polo

This guy was the first tag I made.  The duck float is one of my favorites.  There are several floats in the Chipboard pack too.

These were so fun to make.  They take hardly any time and are great for getting your creative juices flowing, inviting, decorating or scrapbooking about your favorite pool parties this summer!!

Thanks for joining me!

Come in…the water’s fine!!

Hey Fancy Pants fans! Nicole here today with a project using the fun and oh so summery, Poolside collection
Pool
I used the yellow patterned paper from the collection to create a big and bright sun shape on my page, adding some foam adhesive behind each of the sun beams.  I love the bright yellow, paired with the rich navy patterns in this collection.

I added in a bold title to the bottom of the page using the POOL title from the Poolside Ephemera package. I added each letter with some foam adhesive to add a little dimension and then added in some water droplets around the title for a little splash of color!
Pool cl2
If this isn’t getting you ready for summer, I don’t know what is!  Take out old photos, new photos, or plan for photos to come and get creating!
Thanks for being here today!

Mini Envelope Pockets and Tag Sets!

05/12/18

Hello, everyone!

Maryám here with you to share my first project using the Poolside collection. This is such a fun and whimsical collection and I really enjoyed the first project I created with it. 

For today’s project, I have made 3 envelopes using an old cut file from Clique Kits. I cut them with my Silhouette Cameo and I used 3 different pattern papers of the 12×12 version. I added some photos, tags and even a shaker pocket to the envelopes.

Here are some photos of each one.

Envelope 1: For the first one, I used the Summer Lovin’ paper. In the front, I added some ephemera pieces and with the help of one paper clip, I attached them to the envelope. Once I finished it, I repeated the same steps for the other ones.

Water Country!

05/10/18

Morning!

It wasn’t long ago that it was still snowing here in my neck of the woods, so I am truly ready for SUMMER!  Using Poolside made me warmer, just by working with it!  Ha!  Anyway, I printed some photos from our trip to Water Country.  A large group of us go every year.  We always have a great time.

I picked the pool tile paper (Let’s Flamingly) as my base.  That is the ONLY 12×12 paper I used.  The rest is with the 6×6 paper pad.

Water-Country

I used a cut file that I backed with the paper pad.  I wanted smaller patterns.  Trick is, these papers all have upright designs.  When piecing together behind a file, you need to make sure that your papers are in the proper direction or you may have upside down flamingos and ducks!  I used a FREE cut file from Paper Issues. This one is called Sunny Days.

Now, have you seen the ephemera in the Poolside collection?  Fab.  Just fab.  |

Water-Country-float

See?  Fab, right?  I just love them all I bought 2 sets.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Oh so happy!

Hi there,

Zsoka back with you today sharing my newest layout I’ve created for Fancy Pants Designs!

I remembered using a specific cut file about 2 or so years ago but for the life of me I could not find it, I have no idea whose design it was. So I just went ahead and made my own in the Silhouette Studio program – it’s basically just triangle shapes arranged in a circle.

I cut this from one of the patterned papers, then backed the rays with different patterned papers from The Bright Side collection. I also added some machine stitching in the middle of the rays.

I created one cluster in the middle of the page, so it is a very simple design. I felt like otherwise the page would have been too busy. I layered tissue paper, tags, die cuts behind my photo and glued these down. I then added different embellies around and on top of my photo: labels, chipboard stickers, die cuts. For some interest I added a die cut photo frame too and my title also comes from the die cut ephemera pack.

To finish off my page I glued down some colourful puffy sticker dots!

I hope you like this simple idea!

Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a great day!

See you soon!

Handmade gift boxes!

04/27/18

Hello friends!  A diy inspired blog post for you today, on creating
gift boxes using pattern paper!  Lately I have been loving using up
pattern paper, creating bags, envelopes, boxes, tags, banners, etc…
fun and different ways to express my creativity, and using up my
supplies!  Today, I am sharing a few different sized boxes, and how I
decorated them.

BrightSide_GiftBoxes1_LatishaYoast

If you do a simple search on diy gift boxes, you will find so many
different ways to create a box out of paper.  The internet is amazing!
After creating the box, using pattern paper, tags, ephemera &
chipboard stickers all from The Bright Side collections, I made a tag.
Instead of attaching the tag to a tied ribbon around the box, it was
adhered to the top of the box.

BrightSide_GiftBoxes2_LatishaYoast

The bigger box was having a hard time staying closed, so tying ribbon
around it worked like a charm.  To embellish, a tag was create and
added to the ribbon.

BrightSide_GiftBoxes3_LatishaYoast

One of my favorite things about using a collection to create anything
diy, is that it all perfectly coordinates! The cute rain boots paper,
with the cute rain boots die cut ephemera! So cute!  The tag and the
die cut were adhered to the box using foam adhesive, which gives it
dimension.

The next time, you need to wrap a present, consider creating your own
gift box, it really is so easy.  Especially with pretty ephemera designs, online templates,
directions, punches and dies!
